We are Taking to the Skies for Overgate Hospice...
July 19, 2017
At Ryder & Dutton, we have a number of local charities that we are proud to support in anyway that we can. One of those based near our Halifax branch is Overgate Hospice, who do fantastic work and ‘aim to care for the whole person to give them the best possible quality of life and also provide support for the patient's family and/ or carers.’
This year we have decided to do something a little different to raise money for the Hospice. 5 members of our West Yorkshire based branches will be taking to the skies and leaping from a plane, taking part in the 15K Experience Tandem Skydive, in order to raise money for this fantastic cause.
On the 2nd September, they will travel up into the air for 15 minutes in order to get up to altitude and then they will be taking part in the event, which is the HIGHEST skydive in the UK, jumping 15,000 feet and then free falling for a minute until the parachutes are opened!
We have set a massive target for this event, looking to raise a total of £1750 by jumping out of a plane in the name of charity. Both ourselves and Overgate Hospice are looking to raise awareness for the event and trying to raise the largest amount we can to support the work this great Hospice do. Therefore if you could help out by sharing this post with your friends online or even if you could dig deep and donate a few pounds, it would be hugely appreciated.
